  1. Firstly Kai doesn't have unlimited reactions... Maximum number of reactions allowed to give per day: New Users - 0 (These are brand new accounts) Regulars - 3 (New Users are promoted to this after 4 posts) Donators - 10 VIP - 13 Members - 15 Wardens - 18 Moderators - 20 Senior Moderators - 30 Rather than reactions that do nothing but giving people a notification, What about a tiered system say Positive Reactions +3 The more Neutral Reactions a +1/2 and the Negative ones +1. I would like to try out and bringing back negative reactions with a -1 but should they be abused again... and the Roaming gangs of people negative reactions just because they dislike the person it would be removed quite soon. Thoughts?

    Isn't that what you pretty much did? You posted your bit but left out the fact that out of the 3 mods that replied, 2 had detailed posts that disagreed with it on most of the points kinda misses most of the context. You said senior staff members didn't even reply to that thread, which is true, but you left out that I had spoken to you in your 1on1 about it which I gave my personal reasons on it, being that I felt for the most part Kai and Cheesepuff had already summed up everything for me and that I didn't want to say "x is not happening"/"y is not getting added" I wanted to see who replied and what they thought and anything else would be discussed in an admin meeting which it was... It was even agreed that some of the things we discussed were to be added e.g. approving content/posts and view warning points. During the meeting it was said that there isn't much content that is actually reported, maybe a couple of posts a month. But from that point on, mods were to report any content they thought was necessary so we could get an actual idea of how mods can help out on the forums or if it was actually even needed. If it was, then we add it in the future.

    I didn't give feedback on this particular topic as I wanted to see all the moderators who would actually reply and give feedback and for the most part Kai and Cheesepuff had already summed up everything for me. Anything else I wanted to discuss on in I waiting for the admin meeting where we went over it although beforehand in your 1on1 I discussed this with you... Also if I just promoted my friends I would of promoted cheesepuff ages go, I've discussed with you during your 1on1 What improvements I wanted to see from you but you stepped down beforehand. When you were mod you never once said you wanted to do x server or else you would've been given server tech access to do something.

    Overhaul it costs about an extra £20 per month to have a Dedicated server as it hosts everything (TS, Gameserver/s and the Website) rather than the alternative of having a separated TS Server, 1 Single Gameserver and Website. The total Donations throughout 2017 only covers 5 months and everything past that was paid by myself, the possible "wasted" money as you say was my own but as I was still receiving DDOS notifications emails a couple of times a month was worth it for me, having the protection from any and all DDOS attack and the freedom to have a dedicated event server while if had paid seperately each month for this server would have costed more than the Dedi. In May we opened Minigames to try and get people back into CSGO custom servers doing something fun while additionally throughout the summer I tried to get as many Tournaments. After the summer in September because we didn't have any dedicated sustainable server, I created up the Warden system to try and get anyone that wanted to actually help and create a server could, which only 2 people every actually applied. One of those ideas we tried out, we created BR Server in November however there was still a lot of people asking about Jailbreak we decided the next focus would be a Jailbreak server. I focused on this and spent a lot of time trying to refresh it a bit more for players that had already spent a lot of time on Jailbreak and mix things up a bit more for them. It released over the winter period which was fun and interesting yet still having that nostalgic feel for the first couple of months but by third month most interested dried while PUBG really started to take off in the community (Before it got cucked by fortnight ) So many people say they want to help but when it comes down to actually devoting time to anything it's usually only ever 1 or 2 people that end up being reliable, Hell... still awaiting a response for suggestions for Outbreaks 6th Birthday event I've tried to get feedback on what servers you actually want to see from but for the most part people are playing games that just don't need a server. But in the end it is up to you if you don't want to not try something or not, I do Hope you do try out though but in the end can't force you.

    Discord Alpha Testing Sign-up

    If you want to help with Alpha Testing please PM on the forums, Currently Alpha testing has now started. The Discord Trial plan. Finish setting up channels and permissions (This should be done very soon) Alpha testing (This should start in the weekend) I'll create a sign up for this if you want to help out with this. (If you've previously used Discord it'll be helpful) This will be to fix any bugs or issues that may arisen and try and iron out any kinks. Once everything is checked to be working as it should, we'll review any suggestions that alpha testers may have. Beta Testing (We would like everyone to at least try it out with an open mind) This will be an open test for everyone to try Discord for Outbreak. We will be listing for feedback during this week, making changes/fix/updates as it goes along. This should last around for around a week. Review and Final decision A form will be created where we'll get feedback and what your preference of VOIP service would be. Following feedback should it be decided that discord is not for us, funds would be needed to be raised for a 1 Year's rental of a Teamspeak Server. With a quick google search prices can range from around £150-£250 for 1 years rental with 100 slots. Probably missed something but that's it for now, if you've got any question just ask and I'll try to answer them.

    @Jak Isn't Mintlou right and the sound quality been updated? It moved to Opus 1.2 in January have you tested recently, I'm not an audiophile as much as you would definitely be, have you tested recently? voice and text channels are separate - I really dislike this as well but I've already been looking at a discord bot that should remedy this so that when you join a voice channel it gives to read and send access to the associative text channel. permanent stream - There's a permission to disable reading message history, which from a quick test it works the same way Teamspeak does. You can read messages that you were there from but nothing else and when you leave the channel you can't read or send messages which were sent after you left. So we could do this for most of the channels to have an associate Text Channel and then have some separate text channel our just for a Global chatting. We can also set Prune X amount of messages. I didn't respond to you straight away Jak because I wanted to actually test and check the above beforehand.

    I asked Discord info to get passed onto to give you guys a heads up before any official announcement... So glad about that... As mentioned all away back in March Update we've been investigating changing our host as *throughout 2017 to Present, donations have only been able to pay half our server costs and the rest has been paid by me up until now* (less than half now) and as everything has is currently hosted on the Dedi when it goes down everything will. It'll end up being like it was 2012 era with separated hosting for the website and anything else. So as multiple people have asked for Discord throughout the multiple threads over the past year or so, Why not try it out during to Hosting transition period then after a week or so getting feedback to what people think, whether people like it or whether there need to be improvements or you prefer to return to Teamspeak. Should it be the latter and people want to return to Teamspeak, then Outbreak would need to be able to fund it. So whether everyone who can chip in does and we do it that way. And maybe we add some extra privileges on TS for those people (Though not sure what we'd add but for reference Pay4admin won't happen) Personally for me, Discord has both positives and negatives and I'd like to at least say we've tried it out.
